ingredients You'll need

In a small bowl combine soy milk with vinegar and let it sit for 10 minutes or until it clumps. This will be our buttermilk substitute.

step 1

Shred your carrots using the food processor. Then measure out 2 cups and set them aside. Add eggs, dates, buttermilk, and oil, and blend until the mixture is smooth.

step 2

Add the dry ingredients - shredded carrots, oat flour, baking soda, spices, and vanilla extract. Pulse a few times then stir the walnuts.

step 3

Divide the batter evenly between muffin liners and top with more chopped walnuts. You can also add a few raisins if you want.

step 4

Bake for 17-20 minutes or until the top appears golden. Take them out of the oven and let cool for 2 minutes in the muffin tin.

step 5

After 2 minutes, transfer to a cooling rack and let cool for 30 minutes. Enjoy right away for freeze for up to 3 months!

step 6

Use soft Medjool dares. This is a key part of this recipe. If your dates are too dry, soak them in hot water for 10 minutes, then make sure to drain really well.
